a meeting with john mccain, instagram, and kelly ayotte, all republicans who have been the chief skeptics about her potential nomination as secretary of state, almost entirely based on what they see as withholding or a distortion of information about the attack in benghazi on september 11 that cost the lives of the u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. -- john mccain, lindsey graham, and kelly ayotte. it is a meeting to try to appease your critics. after she came out of the meeting, it appeared to their opposition to them had increased. if the president intends to nominate susan rice as a successor to hillary clinton as secretary of state -- and most indications from the white house are that the president wants to go ahead with it -- it will be an interesting standoff. host: let's hear what kelly ayotte had to say, republican of new hampshire. they met with the secretary. [video clip] >> i want to say i am more trouble today having met with the acting director of the cia and ambassador rice, because it is certainly clear from the beginning that we knew that those with t
's been doing. what he's not doing is involving himself in anyway in the political debate. when john mccain lost or john kerry lost they had day jobs to go back to on the hill so thermometer automatically and instantly involved in the debate pep isn't but not showing any inclinton acceleration to be even though we're in a crisis at this moment, particularly the republican party is crying out for some sort of leadership to have somebody to move people along to a compromise. he conceivably could be that man but he seems to be very much looking intern fiscally. >> it's a small sliver of people alive that can understand exactly what the governor is going through now. but certainly not within the heightened style of election process that we go through now. one romney adviser compared romney with al gore's weight gain and beard after the election saying that most likely will not be happening in terms of letting his discipline go about his lifestyle. however, is it more a choice of romney not be involved with the republican party sore at any time fact that the roeb party has pretty much given him
to this in 2008 i thought john mccain waged a terrible campaign. i thought he didn't expose the challenger barack obama. i thought he was afraid and intimidated by him. i think i was wrong about that. i don't think john mccain is a guy that backs down and i think i was wrong but i kept questioning why don't you bring it to him. bring it to him. here is a guy who voted president, no accomplish. s in the senate. nothing on his resume out of the ordinary. just let him have it and he wouldn't. the last four years the only leader i have seen in america and mccain goes out of the ideology. he goes against his own party when he feels it is mccain. i mean, mccain is the guy that wants the truth about libya. mccain is the guy who wants to solve the immigration problem. mccain is the guy. i think mccain is the best leader in the country right now. and mccain should be man of the year. go ahead, powers. >> i don't really see that he has worked across party lines with other people. by your own standard what's his major accomplishment? >> he has brought to light a lot of corruption. has introduced legislation
to be reported but i think commentators are being foolish. >> i don't think anyone is going around saying john mccain hates black people. i think the questions they raised are worth it in the context it's like the only way to explain this is it racist to call someone lazy or cheap. in the historical context of our country someone labeling a jewish person lazy or a black person lazy could be racially inflammato inflammatory. when you have john mccain to say that sarah palin was qualified and that an african-american woman is not qualified with a phd is not qualified it can open up questions of a culture land mine that i think the media would be irresponsible to cover it. >> not sure i agree. that's the fiscal cliff as we face the deadline. the president gave a speech that struck me. let's listen to what barack obama had to say. >> i want you to call, i want you to spend an e-mail, post on their facebook wall. if you tweet then use the hashtag we're calling my2k. it's about your 2k in your pocket. >> that's a reference to the administrati administration's argument that if congress does nothing the aver
grampy, if you google john mccain bitter, he continues to be a bitter old idiot. the second one that comes up, john mccain is long and bitter and he wants you off it among 3 million or so other results. so that's that. >> very troubled. very troubled troubling. [ mystical music ] >> stephanie: is susan rice responsible for anything else? she's apparently responsible for the 1998 bombing where she was an assistant. >> pearl harbor. >> something. >> she is responsible for the embassy bombings in africa. >> stephanie: sure sure. it's amazing what she had to say what "b" what a jim dandy idea that condoleezza rice was after she gave bad intelligence over and over again on a multitude of sunday shows and i'm going to guess on shows that are not on sunday, different days of the week. mushroom threat cover. mushroom cloud. smoking gun. >> it's the other rice. >> stephanie: exactly. >> sound byte: we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud. >> stephanie: no that intelligence was perfect. thanks for sharing that. >> she used the presidential daily briefing for kindling. osama b
failed to pass a u.n. disability treaty by just five votes. combat veterans like senators john mccain and john kerry delivered impassioned speeches, but dissenting voters said the treaty could pose a threat to national sovereignty. this is a stretch. more than 150 countries have signed the treaty designed to create unilateral rights for people with disabilities. it's actually based on america's ada act which bob dole helped pass more than 20 years ago. and you know, andrea, watching this american hero on the floor, a guy who is disabled, left part of himself, as he has said and others have said, on the battlefields of western europe, coming in and making a plea. i'm really surprised that this was killed by fringe concerns, fringe, fringe concerns. >> and it was, in fact, his fellow senators, several of the people who served with bob dole, who were the key votes here. and john kerry was leading it on the floor with john mccain. it was one of those bipartisan coalitions of veterans, wounded veterans, mccain and others, and the wounded warriors. the chamber of commerce. this is basically
in alaska. john mccain and lindsey graham, conservatives, said the glaciers are melting. is it due to warming notion or warming atmosphere, do we need a methane can trade system because methane is worse than carbon? some scientists said. a very controversial subject that gets heated reaction in media land. it is happening and it is happening in antarctic and greenland but how do you stop it? stuart: i don't know but i tell you this. this evidence, hard evidence will be used by the obama administration to say we have got to do something, look at hurricane sandy, we have got to do something, look at the icecaps, we have got to do something and a carbon tax will bring in money which is exactly what they want. >> he will leverage a mass delusion, connecting the dots, when you mention the hurricane we have fewer hurricanes making landfall now -- liz: the cap and trade system has a favor factory in europe which is rife with corruption. we have seen that time and again with cap and trade systems. stuart: forbes says 11 states are in a death spiral, billions in debt, no end insight, ill. n
lost the election. >> let's move on to another subject today which is the ongoing battle between john mccain and a few senators and ambassador susan rice. there is a view that it's all beginning to get a little too personal, a little too ugly. what is your opinion of it? >> well, listen, that's one of the things, national security, the decisions that have to be made in regard to the secretary of state, i'm going to leave that up to the leadership in our senate. >> it's good to see you again. i have actually missed you on the airways, reince priebus. welcome back. take care. >>> president obama is launching a full court press of bush era tax cuts are allowed to expire, it will cripple the economy. mr. kruger, welcome to you. >> thank you. >> is the president going to hold his nerve and increase taxes or is he going to be bullied off by the republicans to try and do a deal to avoid falling off the fiscal cliff? >> the president has been quite clear that he wants a balanced approach to our deficit problems, that he wants higher revenue raised from increasing taxes for the top 2%, the mos

on the hill, michael, there is a funny moment. some obscure issue, john mccain and john kerry actually agreed on and held a joint news conference and little back and forth needling of the other. here's john kerry when he finishes his remarks and calls on senator mccain. >> senator mccain -- >> thank you very much mr. secretary. [ laughter ] >> bill: talking state? >> thank you very much, mr. president. [ laughter ] >> this is what happens when you get two losers up here, folks. [ laughter ] we're just having fun. >> bill: good comeback on john kerry's part. >> mccain didn't think that was so funny. >> bill: all right. we've got lots to cover. john boehner actually out yesterday with a counterproposal on the fiscal cliff but how serious is it? really? we'll get into that and a whole lot more. but first -- >> this is the "full court press." >> other headlines making news, the new york city homeless man who was in that photo that went viral last week where a police officer brought him a pair of shoes on a cold n

. remember this moment, president elect obama and john mccain just a couple weeks after the '08 election?
carl levin mse mentioned john mccain are managing this bill. they hope to finish it up in three days. that didn't happen. how much more work is there to do one of? >> it really remains to be seen. a lot needs to be sorted out behind the scenes. i do believe they would like to finish up by monday and that's pretty much where we arrived by now. >> the house approved its authorization bill this year. out of the senate's bill differ from the hospital? >> abeche speaking to people in the house sides and senior congressional aide and they do not see any major difficulties in getting this done. last year they were able to get a conference done and i was assured that they believe they can do the same this time. so to sum up like it's terribly contentious. both committees in house and senate were trained to keep this as a noncontroversial things. coming to the end the session they needed that. >> to think i'll do it before the end of the year? >> absolutely. >> frank oliveri rates for congressional quarterly. we thank you for your time. >> my pleasure. >> .thanks, arnold schwarzenegger on a f
fellow republicans in the room to quote john mccain it's always darkest before it's completely black. but as we look at this election, there's a couple of things that i think are astounding to focus on. the last presidential candidate who achieved 60% of the white vote in the country was bush and he received over 400 electoral votes 24 years ago. in the 2004 bush campaign we received 44% of the latino vote in the electorate. we were having discussions in the white house in 2005 that we were within the territory that we were able to get to majority status with latino voters in the country. and if you look at the election results where mitt romney is below 30%, you can really see the republican's party deliberate strategy to annual nies paying off. and so when we look at as a party and we look at the demographic changes in the country in the west but also give consideration to the fact that some of the fastest growing latino states are north carolina and ohio and not necessarily the southwest border states and states in the rocky mountain west. we also have to look in this election at
